83 Araluen Road Araluen, NSW 2622
Timelessly Beautiful Energy Efficient Passive Solar Design Off the Grid Living in the Braidwood Region
This beautifully presented, perfectly sized, rural property provides picturesque views of the great dividing range and the Araluen Valley. The property feels as though you are almost alone in the entire Araluen Valley, however the land size is a manageable 2.7 acres approximately.
This prestige home will suit a varying range of buyers and is located only 20 minutes from Braidwood, 1 hour from Batemans Bay, 1 Hour 20 minutes from Canberra and about 2.5 hours from Sydney (Campbelltown). It is a stunning home and bushland setting/retreat which is spacious, unique and highly desirable.
The property itself is a one of a kind, solar passive, off grid, hand crafted residence. At the entrances you are immediately impressed by a wall that is built from local Araluen creek rocks which were hand selected by the current owners during construction.
You enter the main living area and you are struck by the enormous recycled American Oregon beams and soaring 4.3 meter high raked ceilings with stunning windows. The fire place has been hand constructed with fire bricks and a unique design that is not only a true piece of art, but it also reflects the heat back into the room and draws external air to remove drafts and dryness from the air.
The house has been constructed with design and energy efficiency as the top priorities. It has an aesthetically pleasant combination of red brick, stone and rammed earth walls both externally and internally, timber framed windows, white washed internally lined ceilings, slate flooring and a concrete slab.
The property was built with Japanese influence originally, and some resonance of this is still there today. The traditional Japanese dining area can easily remain, or the floor level can be lowered with an easy conversion to a western style dining room.
